Before you begin:

When creating the hole for your vent it’s best to use the EZ-POUR® half-inch reamer, but a step bit works well too.

Whatever you do, do not use a twist bit, as it will create an irregularly shaped hole.

If using a step bit, be sure to create a mark one step above one-half inch so you know when to stop drilling. Remember, we need our hole to be a half-inch in diameter, nothing more nothing less.

To Install a Replacement Vent on Your Gas Can:

  1. Drill a small pilot hole on the back side of your can
